From Lyrical Poems

Richard Watson Dixon (1833–1900)
 
IF 1 thou wast still, O stream,
  Thou would’st be frozen now:
And ’neath an icy shield
  Thy current warm would flow.
 
But wild thou art and rough;        5
  And so the bitter breeze,
That chafes thy shuddering waves,
  May never bid thee freeze.
 
Note 1. Dixon. ‘Lyrical Poems’. Daniel. 1887. [back]
